    I have decided to finish the 5 UFOs I have. So far I have finished 2, and today I am going to get out the third and begin the finishing process. It has to be ironed, sandwiched and quilted (tonight will be the ironing). I am not starting any new projects until these are completed (except for the 2 BOMs I began this month).

    WOW! #3 has been a UFO for so long, I just went to get it and to my surprise- it is completely ironed and sandwiched! So tonight I will be getting the quilting process underway, you know- locating the correct thread, winding bobbins and talking myself into it.

    Tonight one more reverse quilt block . Then consider the next step in this quilt and how much more fabric I need.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I want to finish my nephew's lap quilt -- I got his wife's done last weekend. Once those two are done, I can put together the blocks I made for a teacher's quilt, and THEN I can start on my neutrals quilt for another teacher, the one quilt I am looking forward to working on!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I have 3 projects I'm working on and all are at the stage I can sit and watch tv while doing them...1) pinning 2 parts of blocks together to complete the block on a scrappy quilt, 2) crocheting hats for the homeless, 3) the final embroidery square on the "Winter Wonderland" quilt I started about 5 yrs ago! I'd say I have enough for the whole weekend!

    I had an out of town guest this past two weeks. He flew home last night. I look forward to starting a lattice type quilt out of a jelly roll I recently purchased. It is an overcast day, perfect time to start my new project. I have spent the hour reviewing posts here and now off to play with my fabric.

    Quilting a wedding quilt for a customer. It will probably keep me busy for several days. I'll sure be glad when it is done so I can get back to my own quilting!

    I was planning to try to work on the back of my MQ from 2012, but alas fabric shortage has struck again! Searched online and at the shop I got it from and (KABLOOEY) nothing! So I am depressed about not being able to locate a 2nd fabric to finish this back. I will have to put it away in my "never to be finished" pile. I'm really disappointed that I wasted a lot of precious time and $$ only to wind up short again! I really hate living overseas and only getting a bit of fabric at a time. So I am not entering my sewing room again until I can find something small to work on again. All of this is because of cutting errors in the pattern. My usual more than I need didn't work out because of this! Boo!!!

    Today, I will be working on what will hopefully be my last "Puppy". This one should be the cover model for the pattern. He's going to be cream colored fleece and a lightweight tan and black spotty fake fur. I'm hoping it looks like he has a spotty belly that you just can't resist petting! And I'm hoping I can get him done in 7 hours flat. That's my goal!

    Judy L. had a sit and sew on NYD to sew a simple pattern for QOV. I cut out enough for 4 - yes, you read that right, 4- and will be working on those tonight. A 6 1/2" railfence boxed in with 2 1/2" strips. I've got all the railfence blocks made, and am working on the next part!

    After washing and drying the fabrics I chose for TWIST a 82" by 99" quilt pattern; I found in Big Book of Best-Loved Quilt Patterns. I ironed the light fabric last night and even cut out the necessary squares. Only to discover that I did not have enough of the fabric. So went searching and decided on a white. Now instead of a three fabric quilt, it will be a four fabric quilt. That is unless I discover today that I do not have enough of the other two fabrics. I am really excited about starting this quilt. It is my first one in over 4 months...between packing, moving, unpacking and settling in to our new home. So sure hope that this works out. It also requires partial seams, which I have never done before. Sure hope all goes well.

    Sure enjoy reading what everyone is doing!

    I will be working on the quilt I started day after Christmas. Took me 3 days just to cut it out, very labor intensive piecing. I finally have all the components made, when I get them sewed together, I'll actually have blocks. This is a Queen size quilt.
